Misbubble?

Postby balzern » Sat Oct 30, 2010 10:02 am

How probable is it that I misbubbled something? I was PTing in the mid to high 160s and scored above a 170 twice. This was my first retake and I got a 152....I haven't gotten this low since I started prepping for the first (June 10) test. Any thoughts?

did anyone figure out the deal with the mix up order of the games? I know it sounds crazy but is there anyway the scantron was checking for the wrong answers because the games were mixed up? (I know I had driver-artifacts-race-nurses)

Plus you add in the fact that theres no pdfs yet...too sketchy

Yeah this whole administration is weird. I mean the games being mixed up, the pdfs not available, the late night release there are some really odd things going on. I could see myself getting a 155 on a REALLY bad day. I got a 170 on a PT while I was really sick. The 152 just doesn't add up for me. I took this as a retake after taking a class that I felt was really helping me and was evidenced by my PTs...159, 160, 163, 165, 167, 170, 171 and then i get a 152? I don't understand? I felt awesome after the test too like I hit a home run off it?

It certainly does sound like a misbubble.

I agree, something is definitely up. I am anxiously awaiting those PDFs because I can't fathom my score atm. Likewise, I felt awesome after the test and none of this makes sense. I'm blaming it on the mixed up games, that's my best guess. Good luck guys, hopefully we're right.

How could I tell that I misbubbled and how can I correct it, is that even possible? What is the procedure?

Can anyone say more or explain the mixed up games?

Yeah, if you did misbubble do they factor it into your score and give you the corrected score? I feel like this is a shot in the dark but I have never done this bad and felt fine during the test....

Listen, it probably isn't smart to get your hopes up, wait till you see the pdf.

Yeah I know, if we even get the PDFs. Watch it be a random non disclosed test. Did anyone's email date change, mine didn't. I took in June and the PDFs were immediately available...or available like an hour after I got my score? Why are things so different this time around?

STOP GIVING ME HOPE!

Honestly though guys, I feel that I should have gotten higher, although 161 was the minimum i saw myself getting I was being OVERLY pessimistic. I had drivers/artifacts/runners/nurses. I heard about the 2 orders but I'm sure they had different tests with different experimentals; I think we're grasping at straws here.

If it is obvious you misbubbled, ie: the answers for 15-25 are all one off and would have been correct, they will handscore it and adjust your score accordingly. The question you misbubbled will still be wrong (2 on 15, or skipping 15) but 16-25 will be changed.

+1

I can't remember the last time I PT'd a 161, maybe in April?

What are you referring to by a "games mix-up" ? Did this affect test all test takers ?

They aren't now just going to decide it's non-disclosed.

So, you should know if you misbubbled.

Wow, I didn't miss-bubble. I was pretty sure I didn't, but now I just feel so much worse. If I only had a job at least....

First time poster, please take it easy on me....I've been reading these forums for several months and I am with the OP here. I took 22 PT's, never scored below a 155, consistently scored low to mid 160's and I was happy with that. My sections were RC-LG-LR-LG-LR. No question in my mind I bombed the first LG section, but I was confident it was the experimental section. As far as the rest of the exam went, I thought I did great and left feeling like I nearly aced at least the last two sections. Well....I scored a 146!! No words can express what I'm feeling, no explanation makes sense, I suppose I'm going to have to take this damned thing again. I can't give up my dream, but this is a bitter pill, indeed.

The PDFs with the curve are already out? I didn't see it in my LSAC LSAT document set of PDFs. Where did you find that and when will they most likely upload the test so we can check for a misbubble? I had a similar issue where I only scored as well as I did when I took my first diagnostic test before prepping. I had been testing consistently 8 points higher.
